Coming Soon!

Version 1.8.0 is coming to you in March

Here are a few new features to keep an eye out for…

1. Quote Stages: Customize your quoting process with Stages! Quotes will now start in an Open status, and your company can customize which stages they’ll go though before being Won, Lost, or Voided.

2. Sales Order Channels: This feature assigns channels to sales orders for better traceability of where orders are coming from. Most shopping carts can now pull in orders from other sources, so it’s important to know which orders are actually from the shopping cart itself vs. being pulled in from other platforms like Amazon or eBay.

3. Return Order Merge: Similar to the functionality found on SOs and POs, you’ll soon be able to merge return orders as well.

…and many, many more!
